Redefining Ready! Initiative

   FY21 RR! Partners

 Redefining Ready! is a national initiative launched by AASA, The School Superintendents Association, in 2016 to introduce new research-based metrics to more appropriately assess that students are college ready, career ready and life ready.

The initiative  began as a response to dismal college and career readiness scores reported by standardized test makers that fail to portray a comprehensive picture of student potential. Learn more about the new college and career readiness indicators and join our national campaign to help school districts and systems across the nation continue Redefining Ready!
AASA is pleased to invite you to join the 2020 - 2021 Redefining Ready! Cohort.
